Museums and slides: Cora Cora Maldives to open in October

The second largest collection of cultural artefacts in the Maldives will be on view at a new resort opening in October.  

Cora Cora Maldives is the first resort to showcase some of the cultural heritage of the Maldives, which has sat on trade crossroads for centuries.

 

The resort features a museum with the most expansive collection of Maldivian cultural heritage outside the Maldives National Museum in the capital Male.

 

The collection includes around 400 artefacts, which date from the country’s pre-Islamic period to colonial days, and include an oil lamp from the Buddhist period and immaculately preserved Chinese porcelain from the 16th century.

 

Cora Cora Maldives will have a licensed art gallery showcasing some of the key exhibits and the work of local artists, as well as hosting visiting artists from around the world, curating exclusive exhibitions.

 

Larger exhibits such as a traditional Maldivian wooden house and a 900-year-old bathing tank can be seen at the outdoor museum at the centre of the island.
